Stages of Gum Disease

Gum disease is a serious problem that often begins with gum inflammation. Gingivitis (or inflamed gums) is caused by plaque buildup, which can be fought by brushing your teeth twice daily, flossing once a day, and seeing your dentist for regular checkups.

But if left untreated, gingivitis can eventually form pockets between teeth and gums and receding gums. Over time, these bacteria-filled pockets of infection can lead to further gum deterioration and irreversible tooth loss, so starting gum disease treatment in its earliest stages is essential.

If you notice the classic signs of gum disease (like redness in your gums, painful swollen gums, persistent bad breath, or bleeding gums when brushing or flossing), don’t wait until it’s too late. Give our Mission dentists a call right away!

Because gum disease is often caused by bacterial overgrowth due to inadequate oral hygiene, periodontal disease treatment can control bacteria and freshen the breath. Plus, periodontal cleaning creates the basis for healthy, germ-free gums and permits healthy, comfortable oral functions again. Furthermore, effective gum therapy promotes the growth of healthy gum tissue, prevents gum recession, and encourages the gums to fit snugly around the teeth again.
